A little about our club.

The Monongalia Wireless Association is the oldest active amateur radio club in Monongalia County. Based in Morgantown,WV, we are a ARRL Special Service registered club involved in nearly every aspect of Amateur Radio and the services it provides to the public. We are open to anyone in or around Monongalia County, WV.

Anyone can join! If you have an interest in radio, electronics or public service communications we would like to invite you to attend one of our meetings. I am sure you will meet someone among our membership with similar interest. If you want to get your amateur radio license or have a question about the club feel free to drop us an email to monongalia.wireless@gmail.com. Below are just a few of the activities the club participates in. You can also keep up with club information on FACEBOOK and TWITTER.

Some activities of the club and it's members

* Project Lifesaver Training.  This is a nationwide program developed to help track individuals with special needs that stray from safe areas. A radio bracelet which is worn at all times transmits signals that we can receive, triangulate and locate those who have wandered. Bringing them home quickly and safely. We train and certify life savers right  here in Monongalia County. This program works in cooperation with the Monongalia County Sheriffs Office.

* Fox Hunting   Similar to the methods used in project life saver, this is a fun radio sport where a hidden transmitter (the fox) is located by club members with receivers (the hounds). This sport is part art and technology. Keen use of radio equipment and tactical methods make this a fun technology sport.

* Field Day   The largest national event held in amateur radio. This occurs over the last full weekend in June and is a test to assemble complete radio stations in the field and practice setting up alternative power, antenna structures and communications networks in the event of a major disaster. Not only an exercise in operational preparedness it is also a great weekend of amateur radio fellowship.

* Local emergency communications and The Red Cross  When called into action the Mon. Wireless Assc. has provided communications for Red Cross shelters during the February ice and snow storms of 2010. The Monongalia Wireless Association maintained communications around the clock for 7 days making sure supplies and emergency communications needs were met for shelters in the eastern and western ends of the county. These events were coordinated by ARES. The Amateur Radio Emergency Service.

Public Service Communications    The Monongalia Wireless Assn. has provided communications support for many community programs and events. The Morgantown Christmas Parade, WV Special Olympics and the Mountaineer Half Triathlon are just a few examples of local amateur radio operators providing their valuble services to the community.
